The Miami Dolphins (5-10) are looking to close out the season strong with a win, and in the process knock the rival New York Jets (8-7) out of the playoffs. The Jets beat the Dolphins 24-6 in October, but have not swept the season series in four years.
For the first time in team history, Miami has a 1,000-yard rusher and a 1,000-yard receiver. Reggie Bush, who will miss Sunday's game, finished the year with 1,086 rushing yards. Brandon Marshall has 1,177 receiving yards.
To have a chance to make the postseason, Rex Ryan's club must beat the Dolphins and then hope the following scenario plays out: Cincinnati loses at home to Baltimore, Tennessee loses in Houston and either Denver or Oakland lose.
